It is our absolute pleasure to announce the appointment of our Mr Ahmad Alhendawi as the next Secretary General of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM).

Mr Ahmad Alhendawi will start in March of 2017 after completing his term as the first-ever United Nations Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth. As the Secretary General of WOSM, Mr Alhendawi will be entrusted with the mandate of promoting and safeguarding the interests of the Scout Movement. As its Chief Executive Officer, he will also direct its Secretariat, the World Scout Bureau.

Mr Alhendawi began his involvement in Scouting at the age of 13 when he joined the movement in Jordan. He has maintained an interest and involvement in youth support, the Scouting movement, and non-formal education throughout his career.

His previous experience includes work as the Youth Policy Advisor in the League of Arab States, and Team Leader for a League of Arab States programme on institutional development to strengthen Arab youth policy and participation. Among other roles, he has also served as a Team Leader for the National Youth Policy Project in Iraq, a Youth Programme Associate at the Iraq office of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), Emergency Programme Officer at the non-governmental organization Save the Children.

His recent engagement with Scouting includes making the closing speech at the World Jamboree in Japan 2015, as well as the keynote speech at the 12th World Scout Youth Forum in 2014. Scouts who have met Mr Alhendawi at various events have consistently appreciated his open manner, and his active and friendly engagement with Scouts.

“I believe that Scouting continues to hold a solution for youth development in the 21st century. I look forward to working with the WOSM team to expand the Movement and deepen its social impact, while continuing to create a better future for youth,” said Mr Alhendawi, upon accepting the role of WOSM Secreatry General.

We are confident that his extensive experience and knowledge will strengthen Scouting’s profile and lead us towards our Vision for 2023.

Mr. Secretary General of the WOSM, it gives me great pleasure to extend my warmest congratulations to you on your appointment as the Secretary General. I trust that you will continue to work for the improvement of largest Youth movement in the world. I have a special prayer to make though, please remember the struggling National Scout Associations in Africa & Middle East. Scouting in Africa have been disadvantaged and I know for sure, we need many funds to help scouts who faces many challenges. I will mention one area that I think needs your attention: Extension Scouting project under the Kenya Scout Association which has been adopted by many National Scout Associations in the Africa and the world at large. The project is very close to my heart because I have witnessed it transforming youths and making them better citizens. Many have been very successful in their adult live away from the fear of the street life. Please pay attention to this project…..This project if well-funded and program executed as intended, it could prevent many school going kids joining gangs and other lawless activities which possess a danger to the wellbeing of the society and the world.
I know your expertise, I know your passion, I know your resilience, I know your impeccable leadership AND I’m satisfied that you will deliver your promises. Congratulations once again, Shalom!
